Regardless of what anyone tells you, taking nude photos is an art form.
Though many of us may just believe it's a matter of 'point-and-snap', there's actually a lot more to it if you want your photo to do your body justice.
Just as with any good photo, you have to think about framing, lighting, position, and many other things if you really want to get that jaw-dropping effect.
While most of us are aware that a lot of work goes into a fantastic sensual photo, it should nonetheless look like it's effortless.
So here are a few tips to help ensure your pictures are of top quality, every single time.

When we talk about sex, the first thing that comes to mind for most people is 'penis-in-vagina' or some variation of this.
Yet, while that's not incorrect, there are so many other ways to give and receive pleasure than through penetration or being penetrated, which are just as legitimate (and pleasurable) as any other type of sex.
In my years at uni, I've had many a chat about sex on everything from Freshers' Week hook-ups, to the theory of sex and why we as a society are obsessed with it (in other words what happens when Sociology students drink with Psychology students).
Penetrative sex always seems to come up in these conversations, and while I enjoy it myself, I know plenty of folks who often opt to have different types of sex instead.
So here are my top picks for non-penetrative types of sex – or, "Outercourse". Some of these suggestions could end up being a new favourite and a bedroom staple, or you might never try them again - but hey, at least you gave it a go!

The year is 2016. Scientists have proved that water exists on Mars. But can they definitively tell us what female ejaculation is and where it comes from?
You bet they can’t.
Female ejaculation, also known as ‘squirting’ or ‘gushing’, has been branded “one of the most hotly debated questions in modern sexology”, and for a very good reason. The scientific community can give us no definitive answer as to what female ejaculation actually is!
(I wish I had the time and resources to solve this mystery for women everywhere. It would only be a matter of buying some durable wellies, and getting my hands on enough absorbent kitchen towel.)
But until I do, I've found 5 facts you probably never knew about squirting.

We all start out as virgins, which is honestly kind of great.
The first times experiencing each potential avenue of sexual pleasure might be clumsy, intimidating and far from how we imagine them going, but they can still be some of the best and most memorable sexual encounters we have.
University life and the culture surrounding it makes for an atmosphere of sex like no other - it's everywhere, and often on many minds.
For some students, though, penetrative sex just isn't what they're after from the uni experience and many make it through the full three years (or more) without once dipping a toe in the pool of student sex.
Whether it's for religious reasons, asexuality, just wanting to wait until you're absolutely certain you've found the right person or anything else - here are our top things you must know for life as a student virgin!
Ah, Christmas. With only 26 days to go until the big event, many of us are frantically shopping, wrapping, and stuffing the cupboards with as many cheese footballs as they can hold.

From 'Santa came!' to 'Do you want stuffing?', we've identified 18 tongue-in-cheek double-entendres that commonly pop up on December 25th, and added them to these two print-and-play bingo cards.
Cross through each card as soon as you hear the phrase, and when you get a full line, be sure to take a picture and share it on Twitter or Facebook with the hashtag #ChristmasBingOh!
